Sebastien Buemi has won the Berlin ePrix defeating Lucas di Grassi in 2016 Formula E’s season finale, leading only at one point. At the start, Buemi beat poleman Jean-Eric Vergne, but he managed a full-course yellow and then a solid safety car at the end. Buemi timed his restart perfectly and to claim his third win of the season.

Buemi explained his feeling of the win and his nerve-racking experiences. The first lap is always a bit tricky according to him. It is because one is unable to know how much energy one will consume.  So it is basically using a lot of energy and to decide how much energy one was willing to utilise in the first laps.

He added:

“I let him [Vergne] go but after four or five laps he had to save a lot more so I made my move. He closed the door so it was tricky but from then on I focused on building a gap. I was going for the fastest lap with the second car but it was not the quickest race as when you used a lot of energy you really had to save a lot. In the end I didn’t manage it so I’m a bit disappointed with that as its two points, but overall it was a good weekend.”

After starting in the eighth place the, Grassi tried hard to go forward struggling with Vergne and Nico Prost. Vergne damaged his front wing on the chicane, requiring it to be changed and it is the sole reason he ended at the fifth position. Daniel Abt gave a tough competition and ended up getting the second place.

The presence of 15,000-strong crowd was another part of this exciting day that itself turned the heat of the race at the Berlin ePrix. The championship will be ended in London on July 2 and 3.
